Both Types Of Music On PBS

Thursday, March 25th, 2021

What is country music and where did it come from? Award-winning director Ken Burns’ eight-part series Country Music (Monday 29th, 8.30pm) attempts to answer these questions and more about one of America’s most beloved musical art forms.

Chronicling country music’s evolution, from southern Appalachia’s songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to Nashville’s ‘Grand Ole Opry’, Country Music explores the lives of the trailblazers who shaped it – legends such as the Carter family, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton – and the times in which they lived. Featuring first-hand testimony, and rare and never-before-seen photos and footage, this is the story of country music, told by those who lived it and love it.

What the industry says about US

I have worked with Global Listings both during my time at Universal and more recently at London Live. They have been extremely professional and prompt with their delivery of our monthly highlights and are always quick to question anything that doesn’t seem right. I would definitely recommend them.

In an increasingly competitive European TV marketplace, those channels that succeed are those that help viewers make an informed choice from the schedule. We are delighted to be working with a leading-edge organisation that helps its clients transform their listings and improve the service to both customers, journalists and platform owners alike.
